About Me

A writer trapped in a paralegal's body.

I am happily married with a family of four kiddos. As a family who homesteads and lives off the grid, we are prone to outrageous antics and regular bouts of shenigans, from which I take a great deal of my inspiration for my story telling. This is the everyday me - the "I can't believe I survived that," as well as the "one more time, and I swear you will NOT survive that" mother, wife, horsewoman, rabbit tamer, chicken whisper and turkey advisor.

The other side of me provides most of the writings you find here. My writing comes from the deep wells within, it is my heart's way of expressing itself and my mind's preferred method of thinking things to death.

My hope is that you enjoy the offered writings. These are a gift, little pieces of me, the quietest parts, the softest parts, the wittiest parts, the saddest parts, the most damaged parts and the truest parts. Welcome to my heart.

I discovered a new quote that stole first my breath, and then my heart. I think this sums up the current journey I am undertaking quite nicely.

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
― Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit
